Homemade Tzatziki with Easy 2-Ingredient Dough Pita Bread

Don’t you just love Greek food?  It’s so flavorful with all that lemon, garlic, fresh herbs, feta cheese, and olive oil. It’s healthy food that tastes decadent. I have always loved those flavors. In fact I love it so much it led to me taking a job cooking in a Greek restaurant. While I was working there, I developed a few skills. One of my daily jobs was to make spanikopita. Spanakopita is pockets of phyllo dough filled with spinach and feta. I literally have made thousands of spanikopita over the years, I got pretty fast at making them. Now I am not one to brag or anything but if there was ever a contest for fastest spanikopita maker I am sure I would place in the top three. Sadly, I think my secret talent will probably go unrecognized.

You might have heard of this 2-ingredient dough, it’s all over the internet at the moment. It’s made using only two ingredients – equal parts of Greek yogurt and self-rising flour. This dough is almost magical. It basically becomes whatever you want it to be: bagels, soft pretzels, pizza crusts, garlic breadsticks, mini cinnamon buns, cheesy pinwheels, or flatbread. So many delicious options! Continue reading “Homemade Tzatziki with Easy 2-Ingredient Dough Pita Bread”
